Together Project makes change in three interconnected ways: building newcomer social connections, supporting newcomer integration priorities, and amplifying community involvement in newcomer integration in Canada.
We match Welcome Groups of 3-5 volunteers with newly arrived refugees for social and integration support.
We share volunteer resources to help support newcomer households in our Welcome Group Program.
Together Project supports our work through evidence-based program evaluation and research to inform and improve our impact.
Over the past few months, Together Project has been part of the Youth in Design Program with World Education Services (WES)– a program with refugee youth and refugee-serving organizations across Toronto.

Through the support from TD Friends of the Environment Foundation, Together Project volunteers and newcomers enjoyed three opportunities to connect in nature this fall.
Thank you to Evergreen Brick Works, Toronto and Region Conservation Authority, and High Park Nature Centre and for their support.
